The former leader of the Sinaloa Cartel Joaquín ‘El Chapo’ Guzmán has been sentenced to life imprisonment in the United States on Wednesday for introducing large quantities of drugs into the country.
‘El Chapo’ has received life in prison for eight counts of drug trafficking and organized crime, 30 years in prison for carrying arms and another 20 years in prison for money laundering, according to the Mexican newspaper ‘Milenio’.
He had already been convicted last February for leading a criminal organization as leader of the Sinaloa Cartel, in addition to drug trafficking, arms trafficking and money laundering, among other charges.
The Mexican ‘narco’ rose to the position of the most wanted criminal in the United States after the death of former Al Qaeda leader Usama bin Laden in 2011. (EUROPA PRESS)
